Ingredients For Mushroom Matar
2 cans button mushrooms, each cut in half – we’re using cans because it shortens the process substantially,
1 to 1.5 cups of green peas
2 TBS of oil
4 green cardamoms
1 black cardamom
half a stick of cinnamon
1 chopped red onion
2 tbsp garlic-ginger paste
½ cup pureed tomatoes, 2 green chilies cut
1.5 tsp turmeric powder
1.5 tsp garam masala
1.5 tsp red chili powder
2 to 2.5 tsp ground coriander powder
A few pinches of kasoori methi
1/2 cup cashew nut paste along with some coriander leaves!
Before you begin sauteeing the spices, prepare your cashew paste the day before, this one prep step will save you on time.
1. Soak around 10-15 cashew nuts in just enough water to submerge them, and leave it overnight or for at least 6 hours.
2. Blend the cashews into a creamy paste, a little thicker than heavy cream and then set it aside.
3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil and once heated, add in the cardamoms and the cinnamon – and stir until they turn fragrant.
4. Add the chopped onion and lightly twirl it around pan until it turns translucent. You don’t want it to become brown or burned, so pay extra attention at this stage.
5. Add the chopped chili, and the garlic-ginger paste, and fry until they are pungent.
6. Add the tomato puree and cook until the water evaporates, and the oil separates from the mixture.
7. Add your powders and stir. Everything goes in except the garam masala.
8. Add the chopped mushrooms and peas.
9. Add some water and bring to a boil. Then, lower and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
10. Add the cashew nut paste, stir and add salt to taste.
11. Simmer for around 20 minutes to give the spices a further chance to blend together.
12. Add the garam masala and cook for around 5-10 minutes more.
13. Finally, just before you’re ready to take the dish off the fire, crush up some kasoori methi and sprinkle it over the top. Kasoori methi is the intensely aromatic dried leaves of the fenugreek plant. They’re slightly bitter, but very delicious when added to food!
Mushroom Matar is best served over a bed of rice or with traditional naan or roti.

Planning your content calendar is tough enough during the year, but as the holiday approaches things can get more intense. For some #bossbabes, the months between October right up until Christmas represents over 50% of annual sales, for others, the percentage is much more. How do you plan content for the holidays?
Let’s get started with the understanding about the timing of your planning.When to start?I recommend planning your holiday content strategy 12 months before the holidays.Say What??!!I know that sounds really far fetched but think about it; there is really no better time to rationalise the kind of content that will have the most impact with your audience than directly after the season’s end. The period between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day is often best.Not only can you scan the feeds you love for inspiration (they will be filled with all kinds of relevant seasonal content) but the quiet days after Christmas allow for reflection, the essence of what content planning is all about.Now the process does not have to be intense, it’s the holidays after all, but you can scribble notes, story ideas and relevant sites in the early sections of your Social Media Planner. That way you’re sure to remember and begin your execution strategy by mid-year Yes, that soon!There’s nothing wrong with getting the holiday conversation going early. Start hinting at it by thinking about what you’ll be selling and how you can align your captions, graphic cards, stories, images and even your videos with your key sales objectives. Remember, as I keep preaching, connections matter first, then the sale.“Ok, but what should you do now?I’ve got you.
